All the talk, probably for the rest of the weekend, of not the week, is going to be the utter shambles that has been Manchester United vs Bournemouth and we wait to see what Jose Mourinho has to say. But Tyrone Mings didn't have to wait.

Mourinho might be quite glad come the end of the game about the shocking performance of Kevin Friend and the multiple controversial decisions as they may yet take away from his side's poor performance.

Despite being against a side who have only picked up two points this calendar year and them being down to 10 men for 45 minutes, Jose's men just never really looked that good.

The controversy all kicked off late in the first half when Tyrone Mings stamped on Zlatan Ibrahimovic's head and the Swede reacted with an elbow to Mings.

Not wanting to wait till full-time to react Mourinho let Mings know what he thought of the incident at the end of half-time:




Neither man was sent off but you can expect plenty of retrospective action to be taken after the match.

Both players were in the spotlight in the second half too. Zlatan saw his penalty saved by Artur Boruc as United blew their biggest chance of a win and to catch up with their rivals for the top four.

Mings went off injured and it didn't look good considering the angst on his face when he made the bench. He missed most of last season with a serious injury.
